Welcome to Ski 7 Continents in 2017

Please join me in a cause close to my heart.

2017 marks the 10 year anniversary of my father's death from pancreatic cancer. To mark that event and to fulfill a long-time dream of mine, I plan on skiing all 7 continents in 2017! My Dad was an avid skier and introduced me to skiing at a very early age. I've been hooked since.

Please support me with a tax-deductible donation to The Lustgarten Foundation, and be as generous as you can. Your donation, along with my own, will help give pancreatic cancer patients a fighting chance.

Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer death in women and men. The average length of survival for individuals with pancreatic cancer is six to nine months from diagnosis. Dad survived for 2 YEARS and was was extremely brave throughout.

We know that research is our best weapon in the fight against pancreatic cancer. To date, the Lustgarten Foundation has provided $20 million in support of promising pancreatic cancer research. Only ten years ago, less than a dozen researchers were focused on pancreatic cancer. There simply wasn't enough funding available to support a career in the study of this disease. As a result, pancreatic cancer was virtually ignored, and with startling consequences to patients, their families and loved ones.
